Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Purpose: This article hypothesizes that designing cancer therapies based on the organ specific toxicity of the normal tissue of the organ from which the tumors originated could be worthwhile. A prerequisite for successful therapy is that the individual can recover from damage done to the organ or cells.

Results: Therapeutic examples are given for lymphoma, kidney cancer, melanoma and leukemia.

Conclusion: Efforts should be made to identify new agents with organ specific toxicity and study their potential as a cancer therapy for the same organ.
